Abe Foxman, director of the Jewish Anti-Defamation League, has been working for years to defame Christian conservatives as anti-Semites. He has finally gotten their attention by claiming that Ray Comfort’s powerful, pro-life film 180 insults the memory of Jewish holocaust dead. Foxman calls it “one of the most offensive and outrageous abuses of the memory of the Holocaust we have seen in years.”
Filmmaker Ray Comfort, who is himself Jewish, struggles to understand Foxman’s rage. His film does honor the Jewish dead. It affirms the establishment dogma that 6 million Jews were systematically murdered by the Nazis and decries modern ignorance of it. Comfort and evangelical pro-lifers are predominantly pro-Israel. Comfort is astonished that ADL considers his film “perverse.” ADL's press release says that "to consider the killing of innocent Jews during the holocaust to be the same as the killing of fetuses" is "a cynical abuse of the memory" of those Jews killed in the Holocaust.
Why do ADL/Foxman consider the film so disrespectful? Foxman says it tries “to assert a moral equivalency between the Holocaust and abortion.” In other words, he objects because this film makes the slaughter of 54,000,000 babies in America as evil as the genocide of 6 million Jews. More to the point, Comfort considers the deaths and sufferings of Gentiles as important as that of Jews. It appears that to Foxman, only Jewish suffering is really worthy of lament and memorial. He does not consider death for hundreds of millions of Gentile babies worldwide (which he denigrates as "fetuses") to be important – certainly not “equivalent” to Jewish deaths.
Judaism’s Sacred Hatred
As a devout Orthodox Jew (See ADL's Foxman: Man of Faith?) Foxman accepts the ethics of modern Judaism’s sacred texts – the Talmud and Zohar (Kabbalah) – not the Bible. These are the most important authorities of Judaism. Shocking but true, they say the life of a Gentile has virtually no value compared to that of a Jew. The Talmud says “the seed of a goy is worth the same as that of a beast.”(1) (Kuthuboth 3b) The Talmud teaches that the Jew is inherently pure compared to a Gentile. Chagigah 15b says the sins of a Jew cannot contaminate him any more than dirt on the shell of a nut. (2) The Talmud says a Gentile “who strikes an Israelite acts as if he slaps the face of God’s divine majesty.” (3) (Sanhedrin 58b). A Gentile is not a “man.” The Talmud says in Kerithoth 6b:
“Ye are my flock, the flock of my pasture are men.” (Ezekiel 34:31) You are thus called men, but the goyim [Gentiles] are not called men. (4)
God created them in the form of men for the glory of Israel . . .for the sole end of ministering unto them [the Jews] day and night. Nor can they ever be relieved of this service. It is becoming to the son of a king [an Israelite] that animals in their natural form and animals in the form of human beings should minister unto him. (5) (Midrash Talpioth, folio 225a).
As a result, the Jewish Encyclopedia, pg. 176, repeats as fact a benediction from the Talmud, “Blessed be thou who hast not made me a goy.”
The Zohar, the Talmud’s mystical companion, dehumanizes non-Jews still more.
AND THE LORD SAID, LET THE EARTH BRING FORTH LIVING SOULS, ETC. This includes all the other animals (except man), each after its kind. R. Eleazar said: ‘The repetition of the words “after its kind” confirms what we have said before, that ‘living soul’ refers to Israel, who have holy living souls from above, and ‘cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth’ to the other peoples who are not ‘living souls,’ but who are as we have said. (6)(I, Bereshith, 47a)
The Zohar says that Satan had sex with Eve in Eden and created human beings. (Gen. R.XX.11) The Talmud clarifies that Jews were spiritually transformed at Sinai when they received the Torah and the rite of circumcision. Gentiles remain the children of Satan.
Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field, etc. (Gen. 111:1). ‘More subtle’ that is toward evil; ‘than all the beasts’ that is, the idolatrous people of the earth. For they are the children of the ancient serpent which seduced Eve. (7) (I, 28b)
According to Kabbalah, the great tragedy of this world is that Gentiles constantly create disorder and discord. As long as they exist, God and His universe will be disordered as well. The Zohar calls Gentiles “Amalekites” and their state of confusion and emptiness as “tohu and bohu.”
All of these tend to bring the world back to the state of ‘tohu and bohu,’ and they caused the destruction of the Temple. But as ‘tohu and bohu’ gave place to light, so when God reveals Himself they will be wiped off the earth. But withal redemption will not be complete until Amalek will be exterminated, for against Amalek the oath was taken that ‘the Lord will have war against Amalek from generation to generation.’ (8) (I, Ber. 25b)
The people of the Earth are idolators, and it has been written about them: Let them be wiped off the face of the earth. (9) (I, 25a)
Such Kabbalistic Jews believe Israel will be blighted until the blessed day when all Gentiles are dead. Mystically equating Israel to plants in the Garden of Eden, the Zohar says that
before these are exterminated the rain of Torah will not descend, and Israel, who are compared to herbs and trees, cannot shoot up, as is hinted in the words: “no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field, etc.” (10) (Gen. II, 5)
AND THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN. ‘Man’ here refers to Israel, whom God shaped at that time both for this world and for the future world.” (11) (I, Ber. 26a)
‘living soul’ refers to Israel, who have holy living souls from above, and ‘cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth’ to the other peoples who are not ‘living soul’. . . . . .” (12) (I, Ber. 47a)
This explains the Kabbalist’s hatred of non-Jews. Christ said, “The time is coming that whoever kills you will think he does God a service.” (John 16:2) Such Jews believe the death of Gentiles is necessary to restore order and holiness. The Gentile is a form of demon who should receive no more mercy than Satan himself.
Someday “man” (meaning Jews) will be given the preeminence he was created for. Then, the Kabbalah tells us, “man should be unique and ruler over all.” (13) (I Ber. 47a) The intent of this passage is clear: world dominion. Kabbalists believe God’s power will manifest through the Messiah who will give Jews power over the Gentiles, even to the point of exterminating them.
The Holy one, blessed be He, will display His force and exterminate them from the world. (14) (III, Schemoth 7 and 9b)
When these shall be exterminated, it will be as if God had made heaven and earth on that day. . . (15) (I, Ber. 25b)
Happy will be the lot of Israel, whom the Holy one, blessed be He, has chosen from amongst the goyim of whom the Scriptures say: ‘Their work is vanity, it is an illusion at which we must laugh: they will perish when God visits them in His wrath.’ At the moment when the Holy One, blessed be He, will exterminate all the goyim of the world, Israel alone will subsist, even as it is written: ‘The Lord alone will appear great on that day.’ (16) (Section Vayschlah, folio 177b)
Until then, the Kabbalah has a solemn mission:
It is certain that our captivity will last until the princes of the gentiles who worship idols are destroyed. (17) (I, 219b)
To hasten the end of Israel’s captivity, the Kabbalah recommends the extermination of Gentiles as the highest religious duty. Zohar III, 227b: “The only sacrifice required is that we remove the unclean from amongst us.” (18) Zohar II, 43a, explaining the principle of redemption of the first-born of an ass by offering a lamb says:
The ass means non-Jew, who is to be redeemed by the offering of a lamb, which is the dispersed sheep of Israel. But if he refuses to be redeemed, then break his skull. . . They should be taken out of the book of the living, for it is said about them: He who sins against me, I shall take out of the book of life.
In the palaces of the fourth heaven are those who lamented over Sion and Jerusalem, and all those who destroyed idolatrous nations. . . .and those who killed off people who worship idols are clothed in purple garments so that they may be recognized and honored. (19) (Zohar I, 38b and 39a)
Even the liturgy of the synagogue has a much deeper significance than Christian evangelicals imagine.
The feast of Tabernacles is the period when Israel triumphs over the other peoples of the world. That is why during this feast we seize the loulab and carry it as a trophy to show that we have conquered all the other people, known as ‘populace’. . . . (Toldoth Noah 63b)
Evangelicals are able to see the willingness of Muslim extremists to slay Christian “infidels.” It is shocking to perceive that Jewish sacred literature contains the same homicidal zeal, and worse.
Explaining Foxman’s Rage
Almost anyone would be outraged if human suffering and death was equated with the suffering and death of ants. But this is apparently how Foxman sees the comparison of any number of Gentile deaths through abortion to Jewish Holocaust deaths. No magnitude of Gentile suffering—including the slaughter of 94 million under Jewish inspired Communism—can compare to the suffering of Jews. (See Jewish Activists Created Communism).
Jewish supremacy’s long-term strategy is to condition non-Jews that they are inferior to Jews and will someday be ruled by them. Present Jewish power in media, government and finance will someday be absolute if Foxman has his way (See 'Babylon the Great' is Israel).
This is the ADL which all Christian/Conservative leaders cringe before in silence, dreading its accusation of anti-Semitism. Yet, encouragingly, as a result of ADL's attack, Life Site News informed Christians of ADL's existence and identity as a "Jewish" organization. Such courage is virtually unprecedented. ADL's attack has opened doors of Christian awareness concerning its existence and threat to civilization. May the boldness of Life Site News be repeated and such doors opened ever wider!
How does the Zohar say Jews will rule?
Rabbi Jehuda said to him (Rabbi Chezkia): ‘He is to be praised who is able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much to be praised who get free from them and fight against them.’ Rabbi Chezkia asked, ‘How must we fight against them?’ Rabbi Jehuda, ‘By wise counsel thou shalt war against them.’ (Proverbs 24:6) By what kind of war? The kind of war that every son of man must war against his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau – by deceit and trickery wherever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing, until proper order restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we free ourselves from them and rule over them.’ (I, 160a, Pranaitis Trans. p. 74, 75)
This passage from the Mantuan edition of the Zohar in the Judaic section of the Library of Congress was translated for me from the Aramaic by professors of Hebrew and Aramaic. They found the Pranaitis translation of this text and others perfectly accurate.
Is Kabbalah believed by only the tiniest number of fanatics? The preface to the Soncino edition of the Zohar says:
The Zohar appeals to many Jews in a way that makes them regard it as the most sacred of sacred books! For it mirrors Judaism as an intensely vital religion of the spirit. More overwhelmingly than any other book or code, more even than the Bible, does it give to the Jew the conviction of an inner, unseen spiritual universe – an eternal moral order. (p. 12)
During the present century there has been a distinct revival of interest. . .in Kabbalah and eminent Jewish scholars have attempted to show that these devotees of the mystic side of Jewish life and religion were not, as is popularly supposed, half-crazy visionaries living in a universe peopled by the figments of their own degenerate brains, but men of intellect, scholarship and sound sense who aimed at bringing back to Jewish organized communal life a breath of that mystic sentiment and emotion which are the aromatic life essence of religion, and which are indispensable to Judaism if it is to continue to play its predestined part of bringing mankind ‘under the wings of the shekinah.’ (p. 25)
Judaism’s “predestined part of bringing mankind under the wings of the shekinah “means, of course, under Jewish control. According to the Zohar (I 24b), Israel is God’s “lower shekinah” which must completely subdue the nations before the “upper shekinah” of God and His Torah will descend, so united heaven and earth. Thus the Kabbalistic Jew considers himself an intermediary between a world of Gentile-caused chaos and a heaven which patiently waits for a reconciliation which only he can facilitate.
